Ancelotti can't see beyond Spanish duo for Champions League

Carlo Ancelotti believes it will be difficult for anyone to beat Barcelona or Real Madrid in the Champions League this season.

The two Spanish giants are Europe's best two teams, and will start the tournament as favourites.

"Two clubs are fighting above the rest: Barcelona and Real Madrid", said Ancelotti.

"Barcelona are still strong without Josep Guardiola, but they seem to be less hungry and less defensive than last season. They seem more vulnerable than in previous seasons."
